Brave new world? Or is it back to basics?

IOL CEO Andy Robinson's - 'Perspective' piece in Horizon's magazine 90

Author: Institute

I believe the spring and summer of 2020 has the potential to have some big impacts on the world of Outdoor Learning; more than the many lost learning opportunities and challenging economic and social impacts. The really significant interruptions to routine and established practice experienced by most of us, have forced a time of reflection and raised questions about the role and value of purposeful and planned time in the outdoors.

Natural Capital

Measuring nature or getting better at valuing what we do?

I trained as an accountant before I realised that measuring finance doesn’t necessarily reveal real value or lead to the best and most meaningful outcomes. As a result, I may have a slightly distorted view when I start talking about Natural Capital.

We’re making progress...but where have all the youth workers gone?

IOL CEO Andy Robinsons' - 'Perspective' piece in Horizons magazine 84

Author: Institute

There had many reasons to pause and reflect in the last quarter.  The reasons include a clear endorsement of a more joined up sector from the HSE, a very encouraging and stimulating sector wide conference and the passing of Roger Orgill, a key influencer of the shape the Institute for Outdoor Learning is today.  All this and more has prompted me to revisit our common purpose as Outdoor Learning practitioners or put another way, to reflect on why we are striving to ensure what we all do is better understood, is more impactful and better valued?
